The Spireites Comeback To Earn Point

Paul Cook clearly angered by Saturday's defeat at home to Burton Albion decided to make several changes. Talbot was the only enforced change because he was injured so he was replaced by Edwards at right-back. Out went Hird, Darikwa, Porter and Doyle, in came Evatt (captain), Devitt, Mcsheffrey, and Gnanduillet.

I spoke to a few fans before the game, they weren't inspired by the team line-up, although they felt Gnanduillet deserved his start. A crowd of just under 6,000 had turned up for this midweek game, both sets of fans were in fine voice and were clearly up for this.

Gnanduillet straightaway was causing the York defence all sorts of problems, often picking up the ball on the left, he would pass it and then make his way to the box, he nearly scored on one of those occasions, a lovely ball from Devitt found Gnanduillet, he just headed over.

Morsy found space in the penalty area, but couldn't keep his shot down, it went sailing over the bar. Ryan Brobbel hit a screamer from distance which Lee managed to tip over the crossbar. Moments later, the Spireites failed to close down O'Neill, who drilled it from distance past Lee.

H.T. 0-1.

Sadly a few fans booed the team off at half-time.

The Spireites looked up for this now and took the game to the visitors, the home crowd sensed this and turned up the volume. The ball found Roberts who hit a delightful overhead kick which was cleared off the line.

Roberts was starting to look dangerous and he had an effort saved by the York keeper. A corner for the Minstermen resulted in a goal, jarvis scored to put the visitors 2-0 up.

Roberts jinked his way inside the box and was brought down, Gnanduillet calmly struck the ball home to pull a goal back, the home fans went wild, could the comeback be on, I was informed by my nine year that we would not lose this game.

Five minutes later Roberts looked to have been fouled again in the penalty area, but this time the ref waved play on.

Jay O'Shea scored for the spireites, having replaced Edwards earlier, Gnanduillet put a cross in, which eventually fell to O'Shea and he stroked it home, suddenly the York fans had gone quiet but the home supporters went wild.

Evatt was unlucky not to score the winner when his header thumped the upright. Six minutes were added, but the home side couldn't find the winner.

The Spireites showed real fighting spirit and were unlucky not to snatch victory. In added time my 9 year old son who after an hard day at school managed to fall alseep on me in a kop full of very loud Spireites, only my son could do that, in the end we were the last to leave.

F.T. 2-2.

Stand Up said: If we show that amount of character for the rest of the season, we will be celeberating at the end of it."

My man of the match was Gary Roberts he was a big inspiration and drove the team forward, although Gnanduilliet deserves alot of credit he linked up well with the team, worked really hard and won alot of headers.
